I have a belt pouch which has a gusset in it to allow me to carry more stuff. Tod can make / sell you one. I also hang my knives off my belt. Why sausage shaped bags - a linen breadbag / haversak would be better and more authentic. I can sell you one of these !!!!! Are you coming to the traders at W...

Kertch should be about 1m square - but this needs to be quite fine linen or you do get the bulky effect. Alternatively you can pin it at the back of your neck (safety pin - a bit of a cheat but who the hell is going to see it ?) - the top trianlge will cover the rest. This will give you the 3 corner...

The arisaid - have you belted this round your waist? Pleat it at the back like a kilt / plaid so most of the fabr...

I agree with Sally. Alternativley you could hand sew some eyelets into it, again pushing the weave apart rather than cutting holes. A stilleto (wooden sewing tool - not a heel !) is good for this, but you can use a pencil and get just as good a result. I use a metal pin with mine and the holes alway...

I make several flavoured gins. Sloe and damson obviously. Tried blackberry which was a complete disaster as was peach. But raspberry was a triumph. Up to 8oz of raspeberries and a cupful of sugar to each bottle of gin - scrummy. A friend makes quince wine which is also superb.

The Floating Brothel.

Check out Timewatch - Friday 3rd Feb. BBC2 at 21.00. The story of The Lady Juliana, an 18thc female convict ship, sent to the penal colonies of Australia, to appease both those already there and Georgain england who had had anough of the gin craze and the debauchery that ensued.
